Pinkerton agent, Parker Reams,
is stuck in Nebraska without a horse, and he’s flat broke. Parker is prepared
to stow away in a boxcar headed west to track and kill the men who murdered his
brother.Out of the blue, a stranger
offers Parker traveling money and free passage to South Pass City, Wyoming,
that’s the very town where the gang he’s after is headed. To repay the stranger
for his generosity, Parker agrees to track down the man’s fiancée and break off
an unwanted engagement. Meeting with this fiancée should only take a day and be
but a brief delay in his plan of revenge.
Callidora Truworthy is an
independent woman with her mind set on being single. To end her father’s
matchmaking, Callidora has hired an actor to pose as a horrible fiancé. The
scrawny man in her tintype photo arrives on today’s stage. Based on looks
alone, she’s sure her father’s going to dislike him. She has quite a shock when
a rugged, sexy, six foot of strapping cowboy shows up as her fiancé. This man’s
all wrong for the part of her fiancé. There’s no refund on a plan such as hers,
and it’s too late to request a replacement actor. She’ll just have to coach
this macho cowboy into acting more like a wimp and hope for the best.
What happens when a perfect
plan gets a tangled twist? All hell breaks loose.
Two seconds later, Callidora heard the
creak of the cot. Her friend had abandoned her. So be it. She could handle
this. It wasn’t the first humiliation she’d ever suffered. From past
experience, she’d learned the best response to embarrassment—act like there was
no problem. Slipping a hand through the bars, she gave a wiggly-fingered wave
to the pair standing before her. “Hello, Father.”
At her greeting to her father, the
handsome stranger’s eyebrows raised as if suddenly surprise.
Dan scratched his whiskered cheek. “Just
what the hell are you doing?”
“Getting fresh air?” she offered not so
assuredly. A curl drooped over her eye, and she nonchalantly hooked it behind
her ear. “What have you been up to?” Her gaze cut to the man in the black
cowboy hat, blue chambray shirt and remarkably tight jeans who stood beside her
The afternoon sun highlighted the tall
stranger’s bronze eyes in such a way they sparkled with amber flecks. His
deeply set eyes stared back at her in a half-squinted gaze, making him look
dangerous. Excitingly dangerous. “Attractive as hell” came to her mind.
Callidora grabbed hold of the bars, for
her legs suddenly became wobbly strands of yarn. Heaven help her, he had to be
the most handsome man ever to strut boots in South Pass City, or all of Wyoming
Territory for that matter.
Yanking his Stetson hat off his head, the
stranger combed his fingers through waves of shoulder length, coffee brown
hair. “Hello, ma’am.”
His greeting snapped her senses back to
semi-normal, but she could feel the chili-pepper blush burning her cheeks. An
all-over tingle caused her heart to flutter. In her entire life, she’d never
reacted in such a manner to someone of the opposite gender.
